Winter Storm May Loom for Super Bowl Weekend

A weather event will be approaching the Northeast, but timing is still up in the air

According to AccuWeather.com meteorologist and chief operations officer Evan Myers, a storm system will be approaching the Northeast on Super Bowl weekend. How much it will affect the game, however, will still need to be monitored.

"The timeline is for Friday to Sunday," Myers said. "Whether or not it happens during the game or before the game, and whether or not it will come as rain or snow, is still questionable.

A snowstorm would not be unusual for the New York and New Jersey early at that time of year, according to AccuWeather.com expert senior meteorologist Bernie Rayno.

"They are taking a calculated risk having the Super Bowl [at MetLife Stadium]," Rayno said. "A risk because if this area is going to get a big storm, that's the time of year it will happen. Calculated because they only really need one day."

Will it Snow at MetLife Stadium Feb. 2? AccuWeather.com experts weigh in daily with their latest predictions at willitsnow.com.

Over the past 10 years, temperatures for the date have varied from the highs in the low 50s to lows in the teens. Temperatures around 6:30 p.m., when kickoff will take place, have ranged from the lower 20s to mid-40s.

With the average high for the area on Feb. 2 at 40 degrees, and the average low is 24, a storm system could easily drop snow. On average, the area receives 2.2 inches of snow during the first week of February.

On Feb. 2, 2011, East Rutherford, N.J., already had several inches of snow on the ground. Snow accumulation is typical for that time of year.

The only problem is the amount of wimps complaining about the cold on here. you are the same group of people who think your kid deserves a trophy when they come in last. Be a man for once in your life Football is a cold weather sport. if you dont like where it's being played dont watch the game go get a manicure.

Football is an outdoor game played in the fall and winter months, always has and always will. In the cold days will there always be football? Yes, there will always be football in the cold days. A change in the weather is enough to renew the fans world.

Oh please, the Superbowl is a week and a half away. Meteorologists have ZERO clue what its going to be like 2 weekends from now. It could be 60 degrees by then.

I keep waiting for all the "MAJOR" events to be on PAY FOR VIEW only. The owners and players are only in this for the $$$$$. The average fan is already priced out of attending these events. So let's get in their wallets and charge say $100 ( conservative ) for them to watch it on TV. LMAO!!!!!! PS- Most Super Bowls are garbage. Good luck to the idiots who attend.
